Awesome! Great place and it was only five minutes away from the beach! The motel is also five minutes away from the interstate 95! Great and safe place to spend the time with your family. My family and I had a great time! The only thing I didn't like is that the pool closes at 7 pm. Other than that... More

Filthy and filthy, holes in bedspreads, bugs came out at night, not like pictures on the internet. I would not want anyone to think this is a safe place or healthy place to stay. Would not use shower since it didn't drain. The furniture was something that someone picked up on the side of the road. It has not been... More

This is quite the funky place but it's clean, reasonably priced and friendly. It used to cater to a Finnish crowd and, charmingly, some things are bi-lingual in that language. Now it seems to have a slightly Middle Eastern flavor. Cooking in the restaurant is pretty basic but breakfast is inexpensive and worth it. I gave it four stars rather... More

This was the second time we used this motel for our golfing holiday in Lake Worth. Again we were very satisfied with the friendliness and helpfulness of the manager and his staff. The room that we got was large, with two queen size beds, and sparkling clean. We were told that the hotel is gradually renovating all its rooms, and... More

Owner rents to druggies and hookers. Police are constantly there to arrest their clients. Rooms are run down and dirty. It is definitely cheap and no extra charge for the cockroaches. Thank goodness we only stayed one night. Other small motels are located on Federal Highway in Lake Worth that look clean. Next time I will check out the room... More

We stayed for 9 days in this motel during our golfing holiday (it is well located for golfing with numerous golf course quite near). The motel is old but with some improvements recently made, like a new roof, has succeeded to give an impression of being well maintained. Rooms are large and at least a couple of them as good...

I would advise staying away from this little motel from the 40's. Beds not too bad but almost no pillow. We could not close out the light from the window, had roaches hiding under everything and one wash cloth, two THIN towels & no bath mat. Returned second evening to find room not made up but extra wash cloth but... More

All positive reviews about this place are fake. In reality this is a completely unsafe and horrible place. The previous reviewer was absolutely honest "This place is in a very creepy part of Lake Worth". The only truth from the positive reviews is that the room size is ok. The rest is unacceptable: the smell in the room (Tabaco and... More
